the outcome of the election. >> well, this election, i think, was a very curious one, because president obama made some history. normal lee an incumbent with an economy that weak and no particular prospects of it getting better wouldn't have won re-election. but president obama was able to take advantage of i think dramatic stumbles on the part of mitt romney, the 47% line and various other things, absolutely. kelly: does it surprise you that mitt romney's people took so long to address that when it was out there, bain capital, the 447% 47%, it all stayed out there and it seems like his people fumbled with the ball. >> mitt romney was a very competent business executive but frankly stiff and he never really communicated with the american people. the bottom line is if you ask people on election day who they thought had a better vision and. bret: program forountry they said mitt romney, but by 82 to 16% they said president obama cared more about people like them than mitt romney did. kelly: one of the top stories that really had an impact, if you will, on the campaign was hurricane sandy coming
